Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop – New Catalogue

Paper Adventures - Blog Hop Header

Hello!  Happy weekend!!!

We’re kicking it off with a Paper Adventures team blog hop!

The theme for this hop is ‘new catalogue’.

We’re all so excited about the new things that have arrived on our doorsteps in the last week and want to share some paper happiness with you!

This hop has both blog & Facebook stops.  You can follow around in order by clicking on the ‘next’ link, or see the full list below to select from the list.

One of my new catalogues must haves was the Magical Mermaid stamp set.

With two Little Misses in the house, all things magical are high up the list!

The wonderful thing about magic is that the only limitations is your imagination!

Mermaids can be a amazing array of colours.

The background for each card was made using the new Glossy White cardstock.

Stampin’ Up! used to sell glossy white many moons ago – and it’s back!  My sources tell me it’s great for techniques.

I’ve gone simple to show off the colours.  Just the glossy white cardstock, classic ink pads, a spritzer filled with water and an Aqua Painter.

I spritzed the cardstock with water and then swirled around my 4 colours, before stamping over the top (once dry) with the splatter stamp from the Magical Mermaid stamp set.

I’ve put together 4 different colour combinations – and I imagine that’s only the start!!!

Do you have a favourite?  I look at them, think I do, then change my mind!

But I think it’s this one with the Lemon Lime Twist….

Which brings me to a little confession…  I was quite half-hearted about Lemon Lime Twist when I first saw it!  I didn’t really ‘get it’.

Well…. it’s grown on me.  I’m a Lemon Lime Twist convert!!!

Has it won you over yet?

I’d love for you to support my Paper Adventures team and continue on the blog hop.

They love to hear from you (don’t we all) – so if you have a moment, a comment would be greatly appreciated!!!

Next blog to visit is our Guest Designer for this hop – a good friend of mine, Nicole Wilson.

Have a great weekend!  Hope it involves plenty of crafting!!!

Happy Mail!

It’s always exciting to have parcels containing new products arrive on the doorstep.  Yesterday I unpacked, sorted and repacked 6 boxes of fabulous new goodies!

They weren’t all for me!  So this morning, I delivered stamps, paper and bags of fun to my lovely local stampers.

And this afternoon, I’ve had a chance to get inky and play with my new things!!!

What to ink first was an easy choice for me.  My instant catalogue favourites were the Foxy Friends bundle(stamps, punch & DSP) and the Letters For You / Large Letters bundle (stamps & framelits).

And this is what they look like together…

Can you spot all the new products???  As well as the ones I mentioned above, there’s also the Happy Birthday sentiment from the Sweet Cupcake stamp set, letters from the Labeler Alphabet stamp set and the Classic Label punch.

Back to the craft table now – I’ve got so many ideas and so little time!!!  Kelly x

PS, so many thanks to my ever patient husband!!!

Tempted by any of the products I used?
